First off, don’t call the all new 2018 BMW X2 hatchback, even if it does look a bit like a slightly more beefed-up Volkswagen GTI. Because in the U.S., we generally dislike the tried-and-true hatchback, a type of car long loved in regions like Europe and Asia for their versatility, performance and fuel
This weekend the FIA’s electric racing league, Formula E, ends another big season with its finale in New York City. It’s year four of the league, and its only gotten bigger, with more races, and more teams.
The station wagon, or estate wagon as they call it in Europe, has lost favor in this country for some time now. But among car and performance enthusiasts the question is: Why? A station wagon, especially one with performance aspirations, can give you all the attributes of a high-performance car, with
Let me begin by saying this. I have no idea why Mercedes Benz (DAI.DE) continues to build the G-wagon. It’s boxy, drives like a tank, feels cramped, and is about as refined as an armadillo at the Westminster dog show. But after a few days with it, I could see why this car is dearly loved by its fans
Win on Sunday, sell on Monday. In the automotive world, it’s an old axiom that still holds today. For Ducati’s (VOW.DE) factory racing team, a win earlier this month at its home Italian MotoGP was a brief respite for what has been a tough season for them. But, tough season or not, Ducati’s name and heritage
After spending a few days behind the wheel of the 488 Spider - the hardtop convertible version of the much lauded and loved 488 GTB, it was then that I really, truly felt I understood Ferrari’s ethos.
The revamped Mini Cooper (owned by BMW) began US sales in 2002 and ramped up to a peak of over 54,000 unit sales in 2008. Yes, it’s a mouthful, but there’s a lot to like about the car, as well as some things we disliked.
Regardless, if you’ve never driven the Overseas Highway, or US Route 1 to Key West, remedy that situation immediately. What started as a concept promoted by the Miami Motor Club in the 1920s as a means to get to fishing areas in the Keys eventually lead to the creation of the southernmost part of US
The 2018 New York International Auto Show is in full swing, here are some of the cars that caught our eye and have huge ramifications for industry, and the individual automakers relying on big sales.
For car buffs, Ian Callum is a legend. From Aston Martins like the DB7 to limited edition Ford performance cars, and now to Jaguar (TTM), his designs stand the test time.
Land Rover had a need to slot another SUV in its ranks below the ‘range’-topping Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, but above the entry level (and slightly long in the tooth) Evoque. Enter the Velar.
The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is here - and it couldn’t have come sooner. The outgoing model was long in the tooth, and Lincoln has been hemorrhaging sales to Cadillac in the large, luxury SUV segment for years.
A Lamborghini SUV has been in the works for some time now. So when the Urus debuted in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show just last week, it wasn’t really a surprise. But - Lamborghini did save one surprise - a new drivetrain.
Freezing weather aside, we did encounter a couple big trends at this year’s show, as Rick Newman and I discuss in the video above. From Chevy (GM) teasing the new Silverado only weeks before the show to Ford (F) debuting the new midsize Ranger on Sunday night and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) busting out its
Now a sub-brand of Mercedes for ultra-luxury editions of its cars, you might think the latest version of the Maybach in S-Class trim - the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 - is only a car you get driven in, not drive. But you would be wrong.
Seventy years ago, way back in 1947, Ford (F) released a revolutionary vehicle, the F-series pickup. Slowly but surely the popularity of pickups grew, as Americans went from using them on job sites to everyday vehicles, and by 1981 the F-150 light duty pickup became the best-selling vehicle in the U.S
When the 2018Mercedes-AMG GT R rolled out of the parking elevator in its Mars Red paint job, there was no denying the beast was here.
The Shelby Mustang bloodline is legendary. When Ford (F) teamed up with Carroll Shelby in 1965 to build the GT350R, it was basically for “homologation” purposes so Ford could race the car under SCCA rules. You probably also recognize it as “Eleanor,” the classic Shelby Mustang GT500 made famous in
When Ford (F) came out with the Raptor seven years ago, it seemed like a small passion project meant only for off-road and Baja-racing enthusiasts. Heck, there aren’t many full-size pickup rivals to the Raptor at this point either, although Ram’s Rebel TRX concept (FCAU) is something to keep an eye
